Pop-Corn Balls


  • 1 cupful molasses
  • 1/4 teaspoonful baking soda
  • 1 cupful corn sirup or sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoonful salt


Mix the molasses and sirup or sugar and cook them to the crack stage. Then add the soda and salt and pour the mixture over popped corn, — about six quarts. Stir the corn while pouring the sirup. Let the sweetened corn stand a few minutes. Then dip the hands into cold water, shake off the water, and with the two hands press some corn into a ball. Repeat until all the corn is shaped into balls.
